Kingo has developed an efficient, next-generation solution to deliver energy through a prepaid solar service that is cheaper than candles, kerosene, and diesel. By combining state-of-the-art hardware, software, and commercial innovation, Kingo is enabling people living off-grid to improve connectivity, productivity, and quality of life. While many families living off-grid will spend $15 per month on candles, Kingo's technology reduces the amount of money spent on lighting to just $8 per month. To date, Kingo has provided solar energy to over 2.7 million people and expects to provide energy to more than 100 million homes by 2035.
Over 1.2 billion people lack access to electricity worldwide and in Mexico alone, more than 2 million are not connected to the electricity grid . These rural households light their homes with candles, diesel or other light sources that can have a negative impact on their health and the environment. Our solution is simple: changing those sources for renewable energy and providing much better lighting quality with our affordable solar home systems. After nine years of working with the base of the socioeconomic pyramid, we have developed a comprehensive model designed to fulfill our mission: fighting poverty through the supply of clean energy. Our model is based in four key pillars: - Product configuration for off-grid needs - Last-mile customer care - Inclusive financing - Social empowerment Our vision: All Mexicans with access to affordable and clean energy.
